Nothing comes to my mind... I guess I was well prepared, as I have already been studying in a foreign country.

Final comments
As I have said I liked my stay very much!!! If you come from CZ or SK, there are cheap bus connections, it's easy to get there. There are not many internationals, only about 20-30 but also from countries like Croatia, Romania... nice people:-) Ausrians are also very nice, bit you will have to make the first step to get closer.

Personal spending habits
Because in the Czech Republic, the country of my home uni, the prices of food and accomodation are lower than in Austria. I have spent less on telephone because I used almost only skype and a pre-paid card.

Personal comments
I was really surprised that trains and busses were so expensive. It is better to have your own car with you if you have one. For example, we made a trip to Graz, 5 people by car - it was only 10 euros per person. By train it would have been 65 euros...

Personal comments
I had no problems with communiation - everybody spoke either German or English very well. I was fluent in German also before I went there, so I wanted to learn 'Wirtshcaftsdeutsch' (Business German) and I have learnt a lot about the Austrian slang too. I understand that a bit now, but still much to learn;-)

Personal comments
The night life is not very intensive but Eisenstadt is a small town so do not await too much. We partied a lot in the "Partyraum" in the cellar of the dormitory. Mendez and Cebu are nice places too. The best pizzeria is near the castle - Pizzaboy. Do not miss Fasching-Dienstag, Stadtfest and Sommerfest, if you go there in the spring semester.
